Recent Publications: New Volume on the Creation of Communities

A new volume has just come out with the University of Arizona Press on community creation entitled Forging Communities in Colonial Alta California, edited by Kathleen Hull (UC Merced) and John Douglass (SoA and Statistical Research, Inc.). This volume incorporates work from numerous scholars who study colonial California to understand how communities were created and maintained—within and between Native and colonist groups—during this time of great cultural and economic upheaval. This volume not only helps offer insight into colonial encounters, but also the formation of communities and identities across time and space.
